– Val Venis’ WWE return has been confirmed and he may be returning as soon as tonight’s RAW. Venis was in New York this past weekend at the hotel with other WWE stars for tonight’s show.
– Rey Mysterio was originally set to face Alberto Del Rio at the WWE Fan Appreciation event this past Saturday but Triple H worked the match instead. Mysterio was not there because he has an inner ear injury which is preventing him from taking bumps in the ring.
– CM Punk reportedly needs hip surgery. Apparently they have a date scheduled for the operation within the next 7-10 days but it’s not 100% yet that he will have it. There is concern within WWE that he will miss WrestleMania if he has the surgery.
